Scripps Health, a non-profit health care system based in San Diego, California, has broken ground on the Scripps Clinic John R. Anderson V Medical Pavilion.

Once completed, the Scripps Clinic John R. Anderson V Medical Pavilion will be used for speciality services like cardiology, gastroenterology, pulmonology, neurology, nephrology and endocrinology.

The $175m medical office building will serve as an integral part of the master plan to transform the Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla campus.

The building, slated for completion in 2016, will also include four catheterisation labs that will allow physicians to perform certain cardiac procedures in an outpatient setting.

Scripps Health received a $25m donation from Eileen and John "Jack" R. Anderson IV for the construction of the facility.

In honour of their contribution, the 175,000-ft² facility will be named after their son, who passed away from cancer in 2004.

Anderson said, "We felt this donation would be an appropriate way to pay tribute to our son John and give others the opportunity to benefit from the medical expertise that our family has trusted over the past three decades."

Since 1985, the Anderson family has helped support programmes and services in cardiology, orthopaedics, internal medicine and urgent care at Scripps Clinic and Scripps Green Hospital.

Scripps Health president and CEO Chris Van Gorder said that the organisation is extremely grateful for the long-standing philanthropic support of the Anderson family.

"Scripps was founded through philanthropy and it’s the generosity of donors like the Andersons and others that has made us what we are today. And, it will be that generosity that will shape us into who we become in the future," Van Gorder added.
